I absolutely agree, that this should not behave like it does now.
The "Freeze" may happen, because the file the shortcut points to does not yet exist at this point...
Notice, that the IzPack Installer shows the shourtcut panel after copying the files, which is not common since most installers do ask the user all questions before installing something.

I'm surprised to see that it seems that shortcuts are created directly when going to the next panel, from the shortcut panel, rather than at the same time files are copied etc. This causes at least 2 obvious
* freezes the gui during shortcut creation (which for some reason is pretty slow here on our remote windows test machine)
* shortcuts are already there and stay there if the installation fails for any reason.
As a side note, I was wondering if the bug report tools of berlios are used at all for izpack (i was going to search and report there), since it seems there are some reports that have been there since 2005, sometimes 4 times for the same problem (the infamous missing ShellLink.dll for instance)
